When there is no water, there is needless suffering.
Poverty, disease, hunger, inequality... you name it. There are lots of things wrong with our world. Each has devastating effects on billions of lives. But did you know that many of the seemingly impossible problems facing the world's poor are linked directly to a lack of clean water?
Nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink.
A child dies every 15 seconds from a lack of clean water.
115 people die every hour from diseases linked to poor sanitation, poor hygiene and contaminated water.
1 in 5 children who die before age 5 worldwide, die of a water related disease.
Children often walk miles every day to collect dirty water to drink.
Water related illness kills more people each year than wars and conflict.
